Filling out entry forms for an agility trial, putting Miss Georgie in Excellent Jumpers while Payton is still in Open... so I stopped to fill out Auggie's and make myself feel better. MASTERS LEVEL. BEAT THAT, GEORGIE. OH YOU CAN'T, CAN YOU.

NOT YET ANYWAY.

PROBABLY SOON THOUGH.

SHOOT.

STUPID PAYTON.

We're going to be watching a dog (and cat) for a week starting Wednesday evening. Will be interesting to see what its like having three dogs around! The dogs have only met once, but they got along very well and she seems like a good dog - here's hoping she meshes well and doesn't make me want to kill myself over the upcoming week. And that the cat and DH tolerate one another, as saying he isn't a cat person is a bit of an understatement.

Note to self: Shut the window before leaving.

I went to walk Josh to the bus stop and lazy Rigby wouldn't get up off the couch so I just took Cobain.
Once across the street I see her standing on the roof looking over the little 1ft wall at the top. I don't think she would jump....but then again I wouldn't be surprised with the way my luck works.

Thanks for the mini heart attack Rig

Why do some people get really uppity about their dogs having a higher title than someone else's dog? Why does it matter if they brag (or in this case just acknowledge) about their novice title? Yes, everyone knows your dog has higher titles. But really.... them bragging about their 'not much work' titles has nothing to do with your dog. Perhaps it WAS a lot of work for them and their dog. Maybe they came through some sort of issue to get there. Maybe they can't afford to trial as much as you. Maybe it's their first title and they're excited. Maybe they have different goals than you. Maybe maybe maybe....

I don't get why people take it SO seriously.

'They shouldn't mention that title. It's not even a real title. It's not hard to get.' Blah blah blah.

Chillax people. Seriously. It's dogs jumping over PVC pipes. Not the end of the world.

Not really a "title" but it really irks me when people knock the CGC test like it's "no big deal" and "any dog can pass." Uh. For my dog it WAS a big deal. So shut your face. =P

BECAUSE GEORGIE DOESN'T EVEN HAVE A REAL TRAINER
IT'S NOT FAIR THAT SHE HAS A HIGHER TITLE THAN PAYTON
DANG IT

*kicks rocks*

In all seriousness though, yeah, it's a game... supposed to be fun. Lighten up kids.

We can create a new thread if needed. So, should we create one?

My friend has seen bottles that have a straw on TV. You can pour water from those bottles by tilting them. However, she has seen those only on TV. They do sell bottles and cups that have a straw around here but they are different. You need to suck in order to get anything out of them. Dogs don't drink that way.

It would be good if the dog could drink straight from the bottle if you are somewhere where it's difficult to use a bowl
My friend might be somewhere where it's difficult to pour water from a bottle. If Lotta doesn't drink all of it, it may not be possible to pour water to anywhere except on the floor. However, one should do it. Water cannot be poured back to a bottle because it would get dirty easily. Then it would be easier if Lotta could drink from a bottle.

Or maybe one of these bowls that folds right up to nothing when you're not using it?
http://www.backcountryk9.com/Gear/Dog-Bowls
It doesn't make any difference that what kind of bowl it is and is it attached to a bottle.

So, is it possible to get a dog drink from a bottle? Lotta doesn't want to drink from it. It doesn't help if my friend pours water from it.

No, my dogs would not want to drink directly from the bottle. I think a lot of dogs would be worried that you were going to pour the water on them or that the stream of water was going to get them wet.

Those collapsible bowls fold up into nothing. You could just put one in your pocket.

It's weird having a dog that watches tv. Last night Rig was fascinated with Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. She could barely keep her eyes open, but she was so fascinated with the movie.

She got left at home while Coby got to hang out at the bar with us
Ah the perks of living in a crappy area...

Gage will, and loves. To, have water poured from a bottle into his mouth, but he's huge and even still it makes a mess because he has no lips to stop it from pouring from the sides of his mouth.
Could Lotta be trained to drink from something like this?
